    As a police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay - with officer Nestor Camacho on board - Tom Wolfe is off and running. Here is a big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by our master chronicler of the way we live now. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfe's previous best-selling novels, Back to Blood is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times.

    Keller's a hit man. For years now, he's had places to go and people to kill. But enough is enough. He's got money in the bank and just one last job standing between him and retirement. So he carries it out with his usual professionalism, and he heads home, but guess what?

    What disappointed you about Hit and Run?

    Primarily is a summary of all the other Keller stories to date, lacking the wit and humor in the series and the narration is flat.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Poe’s performances?

    Yes, he just Is not right for this character, he was fine for the Richard Ford series which I also have

    Stewart "Hoagy" Hoag is always witty and well-dressed, savoring all that is polished and sophisticated. Cases featuring this ghost-writing sleuth and his indomitable basset hound, Lulu, have won the Edgar and the American Mystery Award. They have also charmed fans across the country. Hoagy's newest and richest client is in trouble.

    itinerant says: "self-indulgent"
    "To Childish"
    Overall

    The main character (chubby) of this book is so obnoxious and you hear his whiny mantra so often its very hard to listen to and be able to focus on the other characters. The concept and plot is reasonable and the reader is excellent but I feel for the most part not listenable.
